First, let me say how great it was to stumble on this website. I have always loved to shave and it is great to find guys who dig it as well.
Last month my dad and I were cleaning out his garage and I found a box of (what I thought was) junk. He told me that it was stuff that was my grandfather's and that he really didn't know what was in the box. When I looked at into it there was a lot of junk but at the bottom I found what I believe to be a treasure: a 1959 Gillette "fat boy" adjustable. Seems to operate fine, but has soap grime and other cosmetic blemishes.
My question is what should I do to clean this up? I really want to use this razor, I think it will be a great momento of my grandfather and I am sure he would be thrilled that I'm using it.
Thanks in advance,
